"Creativity and ego cannot go together. If you free yourself from the competing and jealous mind, your creativity opens up endlessly. Just as water springs from a fountain, creativity springs from every moment. You must not be your own obstacle. You must not be owned by the environment you are in. You must own the environment, the phenomenal world around you... this is being free."
If you have the opportunity to watch the Chef's Table episode on Jeong Kwan this season, I can't recommend it enough. So deeply moved by this woman's work, words and practice.
